I'm *this* close to calling the whole freaking thing off. It's my mother's birthday. I'm away from home and I'm done with this. I'm not checking my email anymore, it's too close to the end of term to do anything about anything.
And honestly, my mum who I never see because I live and work a long way away deserves my attention on her birthday. I only stopped to check my email for a moment and all this crap? no.
